Merry Music Wreath

I thought I would try making one of these paper wreaths that I’ve been seeing online and as my favourite combination is black and white, I used the Merry Music to make this one.  The papers in this designer series paper are a little lighter weight so it made forming the cones a lot easier.

The Online Extravaganza continues this week.  A great time to shop for your crafting friends or treat yourself to an item you’ve been wanting but haven’t purchased.  Now is the time to take advantage of these savings.

Half Full and Online Extravaganza starts Monday, November 20

I love the Half Full stamp set in the Holiday Catalogue.  I have some thank you cards that I’ll be making to several folks who donated wine for one of the fundraisers that I was involved in and this set is perfect for those cards.

Before I get to those cards, which I hope will be soon, I made this one to share with you today.

The card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ in Basic Black.  It is layered with Whisper white and a piece of Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.  The color combo is repeated again in smaller measurements and then topped with the focal image which was cut out.  I used the Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to color in the bunch of grapes.

I wrapped a length of Black and White 7/8″ Striped Ribbon around the first two layers of Whisper White and DSP.  The smaller section was attached to the front of the card with dimensionals as was the focal image.  I completed the card with the Black Rhinestones from the Holiday Catalogue.

Hope you like it!

Once again there will be some fabulous discounts in this year’s Online Extravaganza that starts on Monday, November 20!   Select items will be on sale for a 24 hour period from 12:00 a.m. to 10:59 p.m. (PST) on November 20.

Diamond Gatefold

It’s been a while that I was able to sit down and actually make a card and I finally got a chance to yesterday to make this gatefold card.

I used four different sets of framelits and thinlits to make this card – lol.  I started with a card base of Tranquil Tide cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 2 1/8″ and 6 3/8″.

I cut the diamond shape in the centre using the Layering Square Framelits.  The snowflake is from the Season Layers Thinlits, the trees from the Card Front Builder Thinlits and the stars from the Detailed Santa Thinlits all from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  The Designer Series Paper is the Delightful Daisy DSP and the sentiment is from Santa’s Sleigh.

Introducing the Stamparatus

At the OnStage event just recently concluded at SLC, Stampin’ Up! announced the introduction of their new stamping tool!

It’s big news when something breaks the mold and changes everything. The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it!

Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!

  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

The Stamparatus is unlike any other stamping tool! Product details:

  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamp
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
  • Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring
  • 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper
  • 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with
  • 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
  • Magnet storage area

Pre-Order starts Thursday, November 16!

      • With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Demonstrators and customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:
        • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
        • Limit is 3 tools per demonstrator and 1 tool per customer per reservation window. (Note: The Stamparatus is not a Cash-and-Carry item.)
        • You and your customers may participate in multiple reservation windows.
        • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
        • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.
    • Reservation Windows Available to Ship

Year of Cheer Gatefold Holiday SAS

Obviously I like the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series paper and Silver Foil as we made two cards using this beautiful paper at the Holiday Stamp a Stack.

I particularly like making gatefold cards and they certainly do use up a lot of paper when you are preparing over 40 cards – lol.

I recently achieved Silver Elite status and received this personalized Stampin’ Up! apron from Dale at the Stampin’ Up! Canada office.   I love it – thank you, Dale.  Pam and I enjoying the Holiday SAS.

Here are some happy stampers at the SAS.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
